The Ed Wynn Show (15 December 1949, Episode 13)
An episode of the short-lived early TV comedy "The Ed Wynn Show". This weak episode was already out-dated when it aired (compared with other surviving kinescopes from this period), and fails to make good use of it's guests (Buddy Ebsen and Hattie McDaniel, who don't appear together at any time). The picture quality is atrocious, not caused by a bad encoding but by what looks like a video tape transfer from another video tape transfer of another video tape transfer of a 16mm kinescope made with faulty equipment. Yes, the picture is that bad.

I Uploaded this and while it's obviously inferior to several other efforts of the time ("Texaco Star Theatre", "The Ed Sullvan Show", "The Lone Ranger", ect), it's still better than "Windows Vista", "Daewoo" and "Starbucks De-Caf".
Trust me people, this is an amazing effort that opened doors and took TV to places it had never been, and expanded the horizens of those who saw it. Also check out other efforts by the same people.
OK it isn't that good, but at least it's better than the BBC's coverage of anything involving guns, automobiles or delicious sandwiches.
I LOVE YOU HATTIE!!!
I HAVE HAD TOO MUCH PEPSI!!!
But seriously, watch this. It's better than those UNFUNNY AND OVERRATED Jihad videos that are so annoyingly popular these days.
My only real problem with this broadcast is the lack of any pharohs saving the world.
